TruGrid Active Directory Password Management

How TruGrid Active Directory Password Management Works
When PASSWORD MANAGEMENT is enabled, End Users have three methods to verify who they are before they can reset their passwords. In order to successfully reset Active Directory password via TruGrid, an end user must either have setup MFA with TruGrid, or they must have a valid email address in their Active Directory account. Specifically, TruGrid uses the EMAIL attribute in Active Directory if one exists (see below for an example)

When populated, below is the EMAIL attribute in AD that TruGrid uses for sending password reset links.

TruGrid uses the EMAIL attribute from Active Directory to send RESET link
